Legend is a male bronze torso sculpture . The work is taken from another sculpture of mine titled Destiny. I have eliminated the limbs and just concentrated on the beautiful musculature of the dancer who modeled for this work, Emanuel Abruzzo.
Emanuel is a tremendous dancer and friend from Argentina who was both performing and teaching at Jacob’s Pillow. Because there were two weeks between those two times “Manny” agreed to model for me in my studios.
Legend has a stunning blue and mother of pearl patina. It is extraordinary and comes from my years of experimenting with how chemicals react with the surface of the bronze sculpture and the different ways heat can be applied. This adds a new element of color and enhances the sculpture.
This sculpture can be viewed at my gallery located at River Studios. During this period of Covid 19 we ask that you call us at 413-238-7755 for a time when you’d like to visit to view the works.
